 The oxford cloth button down

A classic oxford shirt is an absolute essential and a crisp white shirt can come in handy at all times. From formal black tie events to casual occasions, this is a versatile piece that can be easily paired with a blue denim or even a three piece suit.

• A tuxedo

Every guy needs a tux in his wardrobe. Most men will argue about how less a tuxedo comes to one’s use and will prefer opting for a navy suit. But a tuxedo ensures that you make a statement at the event and is fancier than any suit!

• A classic timepiece

A watch is a classic time piece that is more of a wardrobe necessity than an accessory and adds tremendous appeal to your look. A watch adds the necessary drama to a look and takes it to another level.

• A pair of chinos

Though most men will vouch for a basic pair of denims, a pair of chinos is worth investing in and since they’re made of cotton, they’re more versatile than most pants. They can be worn both in a professional and a casual set up and come in flat fronted or plated.

• A sweater

A woolen sweater with a V-neck is a crucial piece that can be used as a layer over shirts or paired with jackets or simply just worn by itself. If you don’t mind splurging a little, try a cashmere sweater. A darker shade like a navy or grey is great to keep the look formal but you can always experiment with different colours like burgundy for a more contemporary look.
